Spiral of Need by Suzanne Wright
Series: Mercury Pack #1
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Ally Marshall isn’t just a wolf shifter—she’s a Seer. But a girl doesn’t exactly need special powers to know that Derren Hudson despises her entire kind. Disdain practically rolls off the Beta of the Mercury Pack…disdain mixed with a healthy dose of desire. And no matter how much the ruggedly handsome male appeals to her, this is one call of the wild she’s determined to ignore.
After one betrayal too many, Derren doesn’t have much use for Seers—except for Ally. Forced into acting as her protector, he finds himself intensely and passionately drawn to the woman who incites his primal instinct to claim. And when enemies target the pack, Ally’s gift may be just what the Mercury Pack needs. Can he put his distrust aside, or will he force himself to turn his back on the one woman who makes his inner beast howl?
I LOVE Suzanne Wright and have been waiting for Spiral of Need to come out. In fact I have it pre-ordered and jumped for joy when I discovered it available to review on NetGalley (Thank you so much!!) We actually met Derren Hudson in some the Phoenix Pack series books (while you don’t have to read those first I would recommend reading them because many of the characters from those books make appearances and they are great!) He is the Beta for the Mercury Pack and Nick, the Alpha’s, best friend (although neither would admit it.) He is the quintessential broody, rough-around-the-edges, sexy, hot, alpha male even if he is the Beta. Who has been deeply hurt in the past by those who should have loved him. Not to mention he is very anti-social and he also hates Seers and with good reason that is until he meets Ally.
Cain, a crazy psychopath, wolf whom Derren knew from his past asks Derren to take Ally into the Mercury Pack to protect her until he gets out of prison and can do it himself. Derren reluctantly agrees and goes into this thinking that Ally is Reid’s mate. Which makes the chemistry and lust he feels for her so wrong in his book. I mean this is the mate of a crazy person who will kill Derren if he touches her. Yet Derren doesn’t care! He knows who and what he wants.
“Understand this, Ally. There is very little I consider an obstacle when I want something. And when I want something as badly as I want you, I won’t let anything or anyone keep me from it. I marked you, and I don’t consider that a small thing. Do you?”
Ally Marshall is a wolf shifter and Seer who always feels like she doesn’t belong and an outcast. When she was young her entire pack was slaughtered with only herself and Cain surviving. Since then Cain has been protective of Ally and when her former boyfriend Zeke’s true mate begins to make problems for Ally Cain turns to Derren. For everything that you would think Ally would be after surviving the things she has the one thing she is not is weak. She is strong and has a mouth on her that doesn’t quit.
“You need to seriously rethink defying me.” “And guys need to stop shoving their hands down their pants to play with their balls in public.” Ally shook her head. “Some things will never change.”
These two together are amazing and the chemistry is off the charts. As always Suzanne Wright has created a world that full of life. Of course I am so thrilled that Dominic (from the Phoenix Pack series books) makes an appearance here. He is my all time favorite and I really can’t wait for him to find his one true mate. His cheesy pickup lines are going to get him beat up one of these days but he just doesn’t seem to care. He always brings the right amount of humor to any situation. I can’t wait for the next book!!
